Elephant Most Brainy
of the Lower Animals
The elephant is probably the shrewd-
est and most adaptable of living ani-
mals and has no enemies except man.
He eats anything that is green, and
seems equally at home on the plains
or in the forests and jungles, on the
high mountain slopes or down in the
swampy lowlands. His trunk is one
of the most extraordinary organs of
nature. It contains the finest smells
ing apparatus on earth, and when the
proximity of man is suspected the
trunk is raised in the air and care-
fully turned in all directions, “feel-
ing” for the man-smell in the wind.
Once an elephant gets that smell he
does one of two things. He either re-
treats quietly and rapidly or charges.
Years of experience in matching his
wiles with those of man and his high-
powered rifle has taught the elephant
that it is safer to remain in the dense
forests. An elephant can move through
these forests with no more noise than
would be made by a mouse, and the
growth in these forests is frequently
so impenetrable the hunter can make
progress only by following the wind-
ing elephant trail.
Look for Treasure
Hidden by Alexander
When Alexander the Great was
marching against the Persians in 831
B. C. a part of his army mutinied on
the shores of the Caspian sea. There
is a legend that he hid all his gold,
royal possessions and spoils of war
somewhere In the vicinity to keep
them from falling into the hands of
the mutineers. The Archeological so-
ciety of the Republic of Azerbaijan
has begun a search for this treasure.
It is believed to be buried about sixty-
five miles from the city of Baku. There
are no historical data on the subject
as to the location of the treasure, but
an old man eighty years old living at
Andrievka says he owns an ancient
map which was stolen from a Turkish
sultan many years ago. This map, he
says, indicates that the treasure was
buried near his village. Whether or
not the archeologists locate the treas-
ure, it is believed that they will at
least excavate many valuable relics
throwing light on the peoples and na-
tions which inhabited the country be-
fore the time of Christ.—Pathfinder
When Brides Were: Bought
Wedding gifts apparently have de-
veloped from the earlier custom of ex-
change of gifts between bride and
bridegroom, in turn based upon mar-
riage by consideration, where the suitor
had to give to the father of his in-
tended wife a bride price or present
and the daughter was provided with a
dowry as a return gift.
The price for a bride shows consid-
erable variation, according to the
wealth of the interested parties and
the accomplishments of the bride.
Among certain tribes a couple of pigs {
or goats seemed to be sufficient cap-
{tal necessary for investment in ome
good husky helpmate. Among the
Bedouins of Mount Sinal Westermarch
tells us the price of a girl is “from $5
to $20,” but sometimes amounts to $30
“if the girl is well connected and very
Cheap for $1,200
A western young man visiting New
(ork city thought it would be fine to
)uy his sweetheart’s engagement ring
there. Entering a Fifth avenue store
3e was waved from one lordly clerk
io another down a long aisle and at
ast reached the counter where there
was a personage who sold engagement
rings. “Here are some rather neat
rings,” said the distinguished one.
“Small, of course, but in good taste.”
Our young friend liked their looks,
but was pained to learn they ran
from $3,500 to $5,000 apiece. He ad-
‘mitted, in some confusion, that he
wished something a little cheaper.
Then the mighty one reached into a
pin and brought up a handful of spark-
lers. “Take your pick,” said he, polite-
ly repressing a yawn, “$1,200 each.”
The hometown jeweler sold that
ring.—Capper’'s Weekly."
Old Superstition
Much quaint, mythical superstition
centers around ancient Dover castle,
which overlooks the English channel.
It is unique among English castles in
more respects than one. No other an-
cient fortress in this country has
maintained its practical usefulness so
long and no other has been accredited
to the Industry of the devil. Accord-
ing to the Bohemian Leo von Rotz-
mital, “it was built by evil spirits and
is so strong that in no other part of
Christendom can anything be found
like it.” It is easy to see the reason
for this ascription. Foreigners casting
covetous eyes on this gateway to the
rich lands of England may well have
found something diabolical in this
fortress frowning down on them.—Lon-
don Mail
Too Good to Live
A jury condemned the philosopher
Socrates to death, but it is not record-
ed that they were influenced in this by
his statement, in the course of his de-
fense, “While a soldier in the Greek
army I went through the snows of a
winter campaign barefoot, and no one
ever saw me cross a street in Athens
in the summer to get into the shade.”
The mind of Socrates was never much
on the weather, He believed that:one
would suffer less and accomplish more
if he did not bother his brains about
the temperature, and what it might de
to him. That is still very good philoso-
phy.~-Detroit News.
